BOURBON is a global leader in subsea well services. The group is also developing expertise in supporting the development of offshore wind farms.

Subsea well services (wireline and well testing) require expertise related to the introduction of measurement tools in the heart of the reservoir/well.

These delicate operations require thorough risk assessment and thorough coordination with the client.

The well servicing includes 3 packages:

  • vessel / ROV services
  • lubricator well control system, subsea lubricator, control and injection umbilical(s)
  • services: wireline, slickline and fluid pumping services

" Our clients benefit from our numerous years of experience in well servicing, a profession that requires very specific expertise"

WIND FARM FIELD SUPPORT
  • Towing and installation of the 1st floating wind farm off the coast of Portugal

In 2011, the Bourbon Liberty 228, an AHTS from BOURBON’s fleet, completed the towing and the installation of the 1st floating wind farm off the coast of Portugal. On its side, Bourbon Subsea Services took in charge the engineering of this project and provided a ROV.

  • Support of one of the world’s biggest offshore wind farm projects (150 windmills)

In 2010, the Bourbon Enterprise took part in laying and protecting the subsea electric cables in the North Sea, on the Greater Gabbard field (England). It was also used as a « floating hotel » to accommodate the employees and to assist the windmills’ connection task after installation.
